If you already have the image files on your computer, you should be able to upload the images by following the step-by-step instructions. Make sure you have the latest version of the Cricut Design Space software; you can grab that here: https://design.cricut.com/

Hmm, weird! It sounds like maybe it was saved as a “flat” image like for Print Then Cut rather than as a Cut image. Is it just one layer in the Layers panel on the right? Sometimes when you upload an image, the software can store it more like a sticker (a “patterned” or “filled” shape with just one cut line around the outside) instead of separating the image out into multiple separate cuttable shapes. When you uploaded the image, did you use the Select & Erase tool to erase all of the background, even the plain white areas?

Feel free to email me at jessi@practicallyfunctional.com and I can try to help!

When I upload an image from my personal file it all looks good until I select “deboss” and the image disappears and just leaves a border. Can you please explain how I can overcome this.
Thank you in anticipation

Do you have the Chevy logo image saved on your computer or mobile device (or wherever you are using Cricut Design Space)? Once you have the image on your computer, if it’s a .jpg, .gif, .bmp, or .png file you can follow the instructions in the How to upload a basic image to Cricut Design Space section of the article. Be sure to use the Select & Erase tool to erase the background, even if it’s just plain white. Once all of the background pieces are erased (even inside of letters etc.) save the image as a Cut image rather than a Print Then Cut image. Then you will be able to insert the logo into the Design Space canvas, and you can resize it or add text etc. as you need.

If you’re still having trouble, shoot me an email at jessi@practicallyfunctional.com and I’ll see if I can help!

I usually create my own using Illustrator, but you can find tons online! The SVG files I’ve made and shared are here: https://www.practicallyfunctional.com/category/cricut/svg-cut-files/ and you can find tons more that others have designed and shared by searching online or on Pinterest.

No, sorry! Those older legacy machines aren’t compatible with Design Space, so you are limited to the images that are on the cartridges you have.

No, unfortunately, the legacy machines like the Expression are not compatible with the Design Space software. With the legacy machines, you are limited to cutting out images, designs, and fonts that you have on your cartridges.

Cricut Design Space is available as desktop software or as a mobile app, so you can either use a computer or a mobile device to cut stuff out with your Maker. The Cricut Maker has built-in Bluetooth capabilities, so it can connect to any other Bluetooth-enabled device (which is most computers and mobile devices.) The first time you open up the Design Space software or app, it will walk you through connecting to your machine!
